My Dell XPS15 is 4 years old and is a real work horse! Fast, always reliable, and I use it daily for at least 4 hours. There was a problem a couple of years ago with the power outlet being loose. I got it fixed and it's perfect now. Also Dell service has been extremely helpful and responsive on the few occasions I had to contact them. I would recommend Dell laptops whole heartedly.

I'm on my second computer from Dell. Their products last a long time and are well made. They also have excellent technical support for a very low yearly price which is worth every penny as your computer gets older and has occasional issues. I chose to buy again from Dell when my 10 year old laptop finally became too old to safely use anymore because I trust their products and find their technical support outstanding. It is invaluable for someone who doesn't understand the inner workings of a computer to be able to call and receive technical support 24/7. I'd recommend Dell to everyone. If someone wants a reliable, long lasting laptop I trust Dell to deliver exactly that. I was very happy with my first Dell laptop, as well as pleased that it worked well for 10 years. I am just as happy with my second one from Dell.

    The Dell laptop is not very fancy or the fastest, but it works well and it works well for a long time. I have had this computer for over three years and it works much better than expected. The trackpad is a little bigger than I believe is necessary and the keyboard does not hold up well under applied force, but these are minor points. The Dell backup features however, are not very effective for my needs. But, the backup utility does allow you to customize and create a backup that works for you, so this helps the matter.

    I've had this Dell Inspiron 15 laptop for over 7 years with 0 problems. I would rate this laptop as a 5 but the performance at times, especially during startup and maybe 5 minutes after startup, the system is slow. Although this may be related to security software or system updates running in the background. Now that I have a Surface Pro, I only use this laptop maybe twice a month for budget and tax software. In the past I would use it maybe once or twice a week.

    I was very careful in my purchase last Dec. - wanting the most value for my dollars. Over the year, I've experienced some defects - minor but annoying. Easy to get tech help by phone and/or live chat. When the issues weren't resolved completely, they actually sent a tech person to my home, even during Covid, at no charge. He fixed everything. This was even beyond what my warranty covered by they did it for good faith customer service.

    Dell dispatched a subcontractor to change out a motherboard in my 6 months old laptop under warranty. However, when they did so, they locked up my hard drive making my computer not useable. I ended up paying over $650 to my local IT service provider to reinstall my hard drive from a recent back up, and lost a few days' worth of work. All Dell ended up offering me in compensation was a $150 credit. I will never buy another Dell product, and recommend you don't either!

    I would never ever deal with Dell co even if the are the only supplier left in the world. Sales people are liars, technical support not responding, escalation team in tatters even top people. They are busy in social networks not in business.

    I ordered a laptop on their website. The delivery time was too long so I asked to cancel. They said they will speed things up so I waited. My laptop finally did arrive but the delivery services were forbidden by Dell from delivering if the apartment number was not there (which no other company does). So I called back Dell multiple times, sent countless emails.

    Something is wrong with their customer services. I think they divided things into multiple services with countless checkpoints leading to the most broken customer service I have ever dealt with. So after 1 week of daily calls, they failed to change the address with the delivery service, so the delivery service tagged the package as undeliverable and sent it back to Dell. So here I am, waiting another 15 days to have my money back and without a computer during a pandemic where teleworking is essential. A total of 3-week nightmare with the worse service ever. I don't know about the computer's quality (though I am ready issues from many) but I am done with DELL for life.

    Bought a Dell Laptop which arrived dead on arrival. 25 days later no replacement. Tech Support tells me to not call instead email for updates but nobody responds to emails. Awful service from Dell and I do not recommend buying from this company.

    I am looking for a new laptop and Dell Computer looked like they have the best pricing for value. Then Dell decided to get political in Texas. Companies should sell products and stay away from politics. I will not be buying a laptop from Dell, even is it costs me more.
